    How many amps are these cheap grinders, I do a lot of power brushing. My choice for grinders has always been Hitachi but if these can cut the mustard it's money in my pocket.

    I have a 28v Milwaukee cordless... and with the new 28v batteries this thing has some major staying power!

    I've been eyeing the Dewalt 18v 4 1/2.

    Just bought a 5" corded Dewalt but I guess you have to run 4 1/2 disk on it. I don't see many 5"

    Great for a cut or a little grinding. Need LOTS of batteries. Nice for cutting a frozen lock off too. Mine stuff is 18 volt Dewalt. Amazon has had deals on bare tool only.

    The B&D will tire a guy out in a hurry, runs a brush well.

    The OP was talking about 5" grinders here so may as well ask,,,, Where are you guys getting 5" wheels?

    or are most people using 4 1/2" wheels on the 5" grinders?

    I know they make the 5" but not too many in the local big box stores.
